Please join me in a huge round of applause for our students who performed at the Annual Play A Thon at our local mall today!  Congratulations to Jaimeson, Trevor, Mary, Thomas, Billy, April, Alex, Claire, Grace, Jackie, Jaime, Vibha, Elizabeth, Sydney and Sophia!  All of these students did a terrific job!  Thank you to Jillian and Lauren for coming to watch their fellow piano friends perform (I am certain that both of you will be performing next year along with many of our other students).  Thank you to all of our friends and families who came to support the performers!  Thank you to all of our friends & families who donated to the Play A Thon.  We are looking forward to seeing all of you again at the 2013 Play A Thon!

Thank you!

Our piano families are simply fabulous!  They are very kind and generous too! 
Thank you to Tyler for the donation of notebooks!
Thank you to Billy, Mary & Thomas for the donation of candy!
Thank you to Jesenia for the cookies!
I guess my secret about me having a sweet tooth is no longer a secret! 
Thank you again everyone!

Nursing Home Recital

Please join me in congratulating our students on a terrific piano recital at a local nursing home last evening.  Cole, Madison, Emma, Sydney, Jackie, Paige, Emily, Abigail, Elizabeth, Thomas, Mary Kate, and Billy entertained the residents.  The residents loved the performances and chatting with our students.  Our students enjoyed working on their performance skills and sharing their talents.  Everyone loved the cupcakes and punch that the staff served after the recital.  Thank you to all of the students & parents for making last night another terrific success!

Master Thomas

Please join me in a huge round of applause for Master Thomas!  Thomas is a brand new piano student who is studying in our studio, (although he has watched his older brother & sister from the "sidelines" for several years now).  Thomas performed "In The Jungle" for his 2nd grade music class without any prompting or encouragement from me!  I found out after the big performance was over!  Congratulations Thomas!  I am certain it will be the first of many piano performances in front of an audience!
